Staff and students at St Peter’s Catholic College, South Bank, Middlesbrough launched this years CAFOD Challenge just before half term, following a presentation given by Carol Cross, CAFOD’s Diocesan Manager, on CAFOD’s 50th Anniversary, the Thirst for Change campaign and DFID’s matched-funding opportunity during the Lenten period.

The young people lined up coins, decorated t-shirts and hoola-hooped, while the staff gave the students an opportunity to see another side of them, by performing a short play and even giving them the opportunity to soak them, all to raise funds for CAFOD. It was certainly a fun-filled way to end the term and the staff were real sports!!

The activities will culminate in a celebration where they will be joined by children from the feeder primary schools to present their offerings at a Mass at St Andrew’s Catholic Church, South Bank before Easter. Keep up the great work!!!
